“I do think it matters,” Rosberg told Sky Sports F1.

“Because Lewis [Hamilton] is very convinced that Toto is an integral part of the success of that team, which is true, because Toto absolutely is.

“And it’s not guaranteed that if Toto goes and there is a new leader that the stability remains.

“And also if Toto goes it could potentially be a spiralling effect, so that many of the team leaders in the leading positions say, ‘OK it’s the end of the an era, Toto’s going, I loved to work with him, let’s also move on to something new’.

“That could be a really bad turn of events for the team.”
